SOMEONE will pay for THIS!
I really don't mind the Dragons. So corny but I think it could be fun.
Change our mascot from Rufus to Puff
I'm not into the Dragon's. Kinda cheesy. IMO. Charlotte flight is actually growing on me. With MJ owning the team now. I'd still want the Hornets.
Can't do Dragons...makes it look like we are affiliated in some way with our Minor League Baseball team the Knights. The headlines write themselves: Even the Knights could slay the Dragons.
The current color scheme would look pretty good with Flight (minus the Orange)...
I still can't see them changing to anything other than Hornets... If they wanted any of those other names, they could have easily done this survey at any point since MJ took over the team.
It's interesting that they are bringing up names that they most likely own all the copyrights to. ( I assume during the original naming of the franchise that the NBA locked up all the legal rights to those names back then and still owns them). That would indicate the desire for a quick change.
I guess they have been working on designs, logos, etc for all those names since last season.

I got mine a little bit ago. It really does give the impression that the name Bobcats isn't long for this franchise. I was surprised to see a second survey. I wonder if the only conclusive thing from the first survey was a dislike for the Bobcats name. We'll see what happens, but that survey was pretty direct in what it was going for.
Just cobbled together this little pic of what seemed like the 3 most pertinent questions

I could have easily missed them saying there'd be two surveys for STH, but I don't remember that being the case. Either way, this did get a little more interesting.
